This is Kanu’s signature wine, with its soft toast and wooded character layering with perfumed, crisp gooseberry and tropical fruit flavors. New winemaker Richard Kershaw dropped the 2003 vintage while he settled in, but now the wine is back, and very much on form. Imported by Cape Classics.
This Chenin-based dessert wine has aromas of apricots, honey and citrus, and on the palate, a dancing acidity that balances its lush, honeyed tropical fruit and honey flavors. A lingering finish adds elegance. The wine is lush but lively.
A beautifully crisp, unoaked Chenin that jumps from the glass with its vibrant spicy, floral fruit aromas. Just off dry, this wine’s crisp acidity is nicely balanced with just a hint of sweeter Chenin used as part of the blend. Imported by Cape Classics.
The Kanu Chenin offers fresh aromas of honey, pear and white fruit, followed by an elegant, curvy array of honey, spice and pear flavors. Food-friendly but a little luxuriant, it’s a fine example of Stellenbosch Chenin.
Medium-bodied and nice in the mouth, displaying flavors of pineapple, apricot and sweet oak. The oak offers a toasty nose coating Macintosh apple, as well as a spicy, vanilla-laden and lengthy finish.
An elegant combination of citric zest and honeyed curve typifies this wine. On the palate, rounded, luscious honey flavors are balanced by acid and a clean finish. A wine with some substance that will pair well with richer seafood.
There’s a subtle hint of green to this wine’s light yellow color, but there’s nothing subtle about green bean aromas that blast from the glass. The wine also has an intense mouthfeel with zippy acidity, which pairs well with the vegetal flavors that also include citrus and a hint of smoke. A bit too green but certainly intense, with a tart finish.
A vibrant nose of tropical fruit and banana offers a beguiling beginning; on the palate, good fruit flavors are balanced with a pronounced minerality. Try with fresh seafood and spicy cuisine.
